Then they were carefully selected (just stars) by Lila for the big man.
The unenthusiastic elf posed near the gifts.
“Lila, what would you like for Santa to bring you?”
Easy-peasy, little lady.
(We like to wrap everything. Makes it seem like there are a lot more gifts.)
P.S. I will forever put colored lights on my Christmas tree. Why was I using white lights for all of those years?!
Simultaneous to the gifts appearing, Jesus was born.
On the dining room table…
Happy birthday, sweet baby.
Then Lila woke up around 6 a.m. She let us know that Santa came.
Oh, the bah-looms. They made her so happy.
And Santa ate his cookies and drank his milk.
And Vivienne celebrated her first Christmas…
And the presents were opened.
…and the presents were hugged.
Believe it or not, below is a look of excitement.
And they played.
And here’s Vivi sharing her play-cookies with her Daddy.
And there you have it.
The requisite 1st Christmas, in pajamas, standing-by-the-tree photos.
Lila (and her bruise) were very happy.
Since Christmas, Lila has put approximately 45 miles on her new stroller from her Mimi.
She’s so busy she can’t even stop strolling and look at the camera.
Well, she’s been making music. In her own way.
I hope your Christmas was merry and bright.
